Garmin Announces Budget Text-To-Speech PND, nüvi 260


Garmin’s latest entry into the nüvi line of personal navigation devices is low in cost, but fairly full featured. The nüvi 260 can strut around knowing it has text-to-speech capability, which is a huge deal considering drivers should have their eyes on the road rather than squinting at their GPS screen trying to figure out where to turn. Some of you may scoff at this feature because it should be a standard on any PND, but the nüvi 260 is about the size of a deck of cards with a 3.5-inch touchscreen and SD expansion slot for only $499.99. That’s a tiny PND with a huge screen, so don’t be snobby about it.
